Hi there, Thanks so much for asking such a great question. It sounds like you have the auto release feature engaged. This setting causes the door to open slightly at the end of the cycle to allow airflow through dishwasher. This helps to speed up drying times, and prevent things like mold and mildew. You can learn more about this feature, including how to disable it, here:
